Welcome to Induction Program Cell

In its 49th meeting held on 14th march 2017 AICTE had approved a package of measures for further improving the quality of technical education in the Nation.

It’s three components are:

  1. Education on values – Universal Human Values (UHV)

More on Activity and Impact

Value education or education for developing a humane, holistic world-vision, has been the missing link in mainstream education… extensive experiments have shown that it is possible to start filling this gap…”
– Late Prof. Rishi Raj Gaur, NRCVEE, IIT Delhi and Former Chairman NC-UHV
Our effort has been with content which appeals to all, is universal and not sectarian. The UHV content and process is a good example of this… with it, there have been quite remarkable results in the everyday life of teachers and students… We have seen that values can also be taught. The common graduate attributes are precise indicators of value competence in the teacher, student…”
– Prof. MP Poonia, Vice Chairman AICTE
We had planned [in 2017] to prepare one [UHV] teacher for every 20 newly joined students in each department of every AICTE approved institution… It was a big target of then about 70,000 teachers… Today, we have achieved that target… with the dedicated pro-bono efforts of over 500 volunteers from across the Nation… under the guidance of our two national committees and IPC, they have been the core pillar for the work being done through AICTE…”
– Prof. Rajive Kumar, Member Secretary, AICTE
The opportunity to make the necessary transformation in our education has come to us after a long time in the form of NEP 2020… to come out of the colonial system of education and to develop the education system based on humanness for a humane society… it seems to be within reach…”
– Dr. Rajneesh Arora, Chairman NCC-IP
The overall purpose of education is to enable a human being to live a fulfilling life, in harmony with oneself and with family, society and nature, hence it becomes the responsibility of educators to enable the resolution of these issues, so that human society can achieve the cherished goals”
– Prof. HD Charan, Chairman NC-UHV
…over 150 volunteers [from AKTU] have been behind the work being done through AICTE… The fact that faculty and staff are willing to [volunteer] invest own time and money on these efforts for value education itself is an indicator of their commitment and resolve”
– Prof. Vinay Pathak, Former VC, AKTU, Lucknow and Member NCC-IP
